Rarely did he top some of the cuts on this fairly obscure release from 1976: particularly cuts like "Revolt/La Libertad," in his experimental vein, or "Pa La Ocha Tambo," which he recorded wearing his blow-the-roof-off hat.

Eddie Palmieri (born December 15, 1936 in The Bronx, N. - is a 9 time Grammy Award winning Puerto Rican American pianist, bandleader and musician, best known for combining jazz piano and instrumental solos with Latin rhythms.

Eddie Palmieri, NEA Jazz Master and ten-time Grammy Award winner, is a bandleader, arranger and composer of salsa and Latin jazz. Palmieri’s professional career as a pianist took off with various bands in the early 1950s including Eddie Forrester, Johnny Segui’s, and the popular Tito Rodriguez Orchestra. In 1961, Palmieri formed his own band, La Perfecta, which featured an unconventional front line of trombones rather than the trumpets customary in Latin orchestras. This created an innovative sound that mixed American jazz into Afro-Caribbean rhythms, surprising critics and fans alike. Palmieri disbanded La Perfecta in 1968 to pursue different musical endeavors, though he would return to the band’s music in the 2000s
